More Information About Leucosceptrum
Leucosceptrum is a genus of hard-to-find Japanese subshrubs used primarily as woodland garden foliage plants. In many parts of the country, Leucosceptrum is a dieback perennial that reaches a healthy 3' x 3' by autumn. Leucosceptrum leaves are reminiscent of hydrangea with the added bonus of often being quite colorful. In fall, leucoseptrum plants produce small bottlebrush-like flowers...a nice addition during a time of year when the garden flowers are mostly finished.
Leucosceptrum is a woodland plant, preferring to grow on the edge of a woodland or in an open forest so that it gets morning sun. Other than that, Leucosceptrum is fairly flexible about soil and moisture. Leucosceptrum will re-flush with fresh new foliage when pruned back during the growing season. Try growing leucosceptrum with other shade-lovers like carex, ferns, and hostas. When you're ready to buy leucosceptrum for your perennial garden, check out our online list of leucosceptrum for sale.
